Best Places to Ride Four Wheelers in the US

Given the sheer girth of side-by-sides, it may be easy for ATVers to see why gas powered UTVs are better suited for wide open areas. But for those unfamiliar with why, here is the scoop. Utility terrain vehicles can be large enough to damage four wheeler trails, nearby vegetation, and wildlife. Side-by-side owners hoping to avoid these unwanted effects may be able to do so by riding in UTV-friendly areas, such as those listed below.


The Ridge Outdoor Resort


As the name implies, The Ridge Outdoor Resort is a stretch of land that is packed with a plethora of exciting activities. For example, the ATV-friendly area offers roughly 35 miles of one-way, side-by-side trails that flow through the following terrains.


  • Open fields
  • Dense, compact vegetation
  • Designated fire lanes
  • Hilly paths that vary in elevation levels
  • Flow along creeks
  • Barren patches near large boulders
  • Practice tracks for motocross racing
  • Mud bogs
